Inverter Innovation

With Daikin's continuous development for more than 35 years, inverter technology has changed the world of air conditioning for the better. Its impact has resulted in less energy usage, cost savings, better reliability, less noise and vibration, and tighter control around set points of temperature and humidity.

What's an Inverter?

An inverter is energy-saving technology that eliminates wasted operation in air conditioners by efficiently controlling motor speed. Typically, air conditioners maintain a set temperature by cooling and heating when a room falls above or below it. In inverter type air conditioners, the temperature is adjusted by simply changing the motor speed without needing to turn the motor on and off. The result is less power usage and better energy savings.

Air Conditioning with Inverter vs. Air Conditioning without Inverter

Inverter models regulate temperature by adjusting their motor’s speed, versus turning the motor on and off as conventional units do. This uses less energy while keeping temperature constant—supporting both comfort and efficiency. Our breakthrough technology paired inverters with reluctance DC motors can cut energy use by over 50 percent.

Benefits of Inverter Systems

Lower Energy Cost

Compared to non-inverter systems, inverter systems typically use less energy by controlling motor speed in compressor.

Quiet Operation

Inverter systems operate at a lower dB level, which means you will not hardly hear anything as it's running.

Consistent Temperature and Comfort

If the temperature in a room is consistent, you will feel much more comfortable consistently.

Longer Lifetime

Because the inverter does not need to start and stop frequently, reliability is improved - which means a longer life for your device.
